This study was aimed to evaluate the effect of different four classes of nutritional supplements which was consumed by 15 Bodybuilder athletes with wight range between 67-75 kg with total of five groups of volunteers (3 replicates per group). The groups of athlete’s diet included, the normal diet without supplement (T1), Whey protein (WP) at 90mg (T2), Mass gainner muscle builder (MG) at 135mg (T3), the branched amino acid group (BCAA) at 40mg (T4), and the PSYCHOTIC energy drink (PED) at 5 mg (T5). In order to detect some physiological parameters as an outcome after consumption, a specific formula has been followed by those five groups. The results of our study has been shown a non-significant effects (p<0.05) on the blood picture parameters and the liver enzymes of supplements types that was consumed by treatment groups of T2, T3 and T4, while the consumption of PED by athlete donors has been significantly increased at the level of White Blood Cells (WBCs) to reach up to 12.5 compared to control group (T1) which was at 9.2 (×10ˆ3/mmˆ3). Meanwhile, the effects on the hemoglobin (Hb) concentration, red blood cells counts (RBCs) and the hematocrit (Hct) was decreased while platelets counts was significantly increased to the level of 12.1, 6.3, 43.7 and 280 respectively compared to their values in the control group, which appeared at 16.6 (mg/ml), 8.4 (×10ˆ3/mmˆ3), 49.4.(%) and 225(×10ˆ9/L) respectively. The results also found that the level of liver enzymes including AST, ALT and ALP of PED group was significantly increased compared including and become at 12.5, 45.1 and 11.3 (IU/L) respectively compared with the same values in control treatment T1.
